Sabres' prospects getting skating lessons from Dawn Braid

By John Vogl

John Tavares went from talented hockey player to MVP candidate under the tutelage of skating coach Dawn Braid. The Sabres hope their prospects can take a similar leap.

Many of the Sabres' future players are in town this week to take part in a skating clinic. Braid, who is employed by Buffalo as a skating coach, is giving the lessons.

The sessions have been off-limits to observers.

The Sabres' annual development camp, which is typically open to the public, will return July 8-13.
